Wine Maker Notes
Traverse the Tuscan countryside with this flavorful Chianti. The sun-soaked Sangiovese grapes produce a rich, ripe, inky wine with dried plum, blackberry and dark cherry notes. A hint of nuttiness, firm and dry tannins, and a smooth cocoa finish round out this medium-bodied wine. We discovered beautiful plots of Sangiovese grapes cascading down sunny Tuscan hillsides. Grown at higher elevations with greater diurnal temperature variations, the grapes show a balance of sugar, acidity and aroma. Our classic Chianti undergoes gentle fermentation to enhance its fruit character and elegant tannin. We select only the highest quality lots for barrel aging and bottling.
A classic style Chianti made in the traditional sense with focus on the fruit character and elegant tannin that make this wine’s flavor. The grapes for this wine were sourced from a selection of multiple vineyards around the hilly Tuscan region. The juice underwent a gentle fermentation and from there only selection of a few of the best lots were chosen for barrel aging for this wine. The outcome is medium bodied wine that has cherry aromas and hints of nuttiness with firm, dry tannins on the palate.
